provided good care get a new Betta and defend Betta myths seems like Americans believe these myths the most no offense studies show most americans might be too dumb for democracy and most believe dogs SOLD at pet stores are not from puppy mills also most Americans believe what business and government tell them no matter how absurd. Please do not be affended I am just speaking from studies and expierence.
No offense I am not an American, but even if I was I wouldn't get offended. Your point is clear enough. Even though I am an old aquarist I have no experience with betta fish and live plants and moreover I never asked petshop people around for advice. My father handed me down some books regarding the species I used to stock my aquariums with and so I never asked.
It is recent 'knowledge' for me that petshop people don't know a damn about their own job and I am (for a lack of a better phrase) genuinely impressed.
